Vegan & Gluten-Free Buddha Bowl

Vegan & Gluten-Free Buddha Bowl
  • 2 cups rice or quinoa – For more flavor, cook in broth or add 1 mushroom bouillon cube to the water.
  • 1/2 head of broccoli 1 cup black beans* (my favorite) or any other legumes
  • 1/2 yellow onion or shallots (about 1 cup)
  • 1 grated carrot
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup ground hempseeds
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup chopped olives (I like to use 1 full cup)
  • Olive oil (a drizzle)
  • A pinch of cayenne (if you feel adventurous)
  • A sheet of Nori (if you feel like it)

I love rice and black beans (with a little bit of olive oil). It is a staple in Brazil, where I was born. Here's how to improve this happy marriage (that doesn’t always need much):

*The beans should be soaked and rinsed until the water runs clear (explanation in the Burger recipe).

The rice also has to be rinsed. Did you know? It will not only remove unwanted debris, but it will also make it taste better!

Cook rice (to save time, you can cook a big batch of rice, or your favorite grain, at the beginning of the week), cut vegetables and grind the beans. Throw on rice once cooked. It will warm the vegetables and beans without cooking them.

I like to shred a nori sheet on my dish. I like the taste and I know it has a high nutrient density. They say eating fish is good for you and fish eat algae! Why not get the benefits directly from the source?!

Last night I had some leftover lettuce (no sauce) and cooked quinoa. I reheated the quinoa slowly with some water. Then I added the lettuce, pine nuts and a drizzle of olive oil. A DELIGHT that only took 4 minutes to create.
